Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker Review

Design Meets Function

The Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker is not only beautifully designed, but intuitive to use. Along with the espresso maker, you get an Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother, an automatic milk frothing pitcher that prepares creamy, delicious milk froth, for either cold or hot beverages, with the press of a button.

The Nespresso System is unique in that it uses capsules instead of messy coffee grounds: just insert the capsule into the machine and achieve delicious beverages in many different flavors. No more cleaning up grounds or unsustainable disposal of capsules: with a membership with Nespresso, you can dispose of your used capsules easily and sustainable.

With the Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker you’ll also receive six different capsules for free: try each flavor to see which is your favorite. This innovative system is a light and space-saving 4.6 x 9.1 x 12.6, and it can easily fit under cabinets or on countertops.

Choose from a variety of colors to compliment your kitchen space and get hooked on a streamlined, innovative system and one of the best espresso makers on the market.

Features

The Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker is not only a clean, compact and stylish machine, it is also easy to use. Just insert the capsule of your choice, and the empty capsule will eject into an empty capsule container when it is done.

A water tank at the back of the machine has a 24oz limit, able to make espresso for one or a crowd. Choose between two kinds of espresso: short or long pour, and super quick shutoff feature after only 9 minutes of idleness.

An adjustable cup tray accommodates recipe cups and small espresso cups alike. The machine is ready in a short 25 seconds, and you’re ready to go.

The used capsule container can hold up to 11 capsules before needing to be emptied, so you can make cup after cup before having to empty.  The water tank holds up to 23 ounces and is located at the back of the unit, easily removable and refillable.

The Aeroccino Milk Frother is a great accompanying feature, allowing you to customize your milk to your specifications, creating delicious café-style drinks in minutes.

With an included Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother and 16 capsules, you’ll be able to enjoy drinks you thought you could only get at your favorite café. This automatic espresso machine boasts 19 bar pressure, enough to create a concentrated shot in no time, and with two shot pull options, short or long, you’ll be able to enjoy your coffee however you like it.

A water container at the back of the unit is an impressive 23.8oz capacity, so you’ll be able to make several cups before refilling. Note that this machine works with the Nespresso capsule system only, not traditional coffee grounds.

Comparisons

From the same manufacturer as the Nespresso Inissia, the Nespresso Pixie also works with the Nespresso capsule system, boasts 19 bar pressure, a 24oz water tank, sustainable and an adjustable drip tray. The design of this machine differs slightly in that it is negligibly smaller, but a different design featuring aluminum siding and LED lights.

The slightly larger KitchenAid KES2102ER Pro Line Series Espresso Maker with Dual Independent Boilers is another, more adjustable and customizable option for home espresso makers.

For those who don’t want to deal with the capsule system, the Kitchen Aid KES2102ER Pro Line Series Espresso Maker is a great alternative for those who want more versatility and customizability in their espresso and coffee making. This machine is substantially more expensive for its many features.
